Kate- you O any where from 12-36 hours after you get ur + OPK. So I can O anywhere from 2 days ago to tonight/tomorrow. You confirm O with 3 raised temps. Do you temp or chart?

No I haven't looked into temping etc yet. I did try but I used to forget to take them as I woke up so by the time I remembered it was to late. I also think the thermometer I was using wasn't quite right. Only has one digit after the decimal, it's best to have one with 2 isn't it?

I haven't taken a digital yet, they are so expensive here in Singapore. No lines came up with FMU this morning on the two different tests I have (one is 10 miu strips, and the other is the 25 miu wand). :((( Pretty sure I had a chemical two months ago as well which was our first month TTC. I was 3 days late and it was extremely heavy. I'm guessing they are from varicocele and the low morphology. Such a bummer...I was trying not to get my hopes up, but of course I did!

Will keep you updated...

Thanks Purple, I will have to see if I can get a new thermometer and see how I go.

Haj, A similar thing happened to me last month too. Though mine were not able to be seen in a photograph so they may have been in my head. I am hoping really hard that af does not turn up for you.

Thanks kates86, sorry to hear you went through the same thing last month :( I have been reading online to see if poor morphology affects miscarriages and CPs but most people seem to think that it doesn't matter once sperm meet egg...but 2 CPs in 3 months ttc is kind of questionable when we already know what we are dealing with...makes you wonder.

Sorry I've been MIA - just got back from a trip up in the mountains for our wedding anniversary!!! :).

Should O in the next few days.... We BD only once on our trip.... We drank a little Too much seeing as it's "Colorado wine country"

Planning on BD the next few days to see if we can catch it this time... Not looking forward the 2ww coming... I'm a super symptom seeker and I think I drive my mind into feeling things that aren't there...

Maybe we'll be close on our 2ww purple

Sorry to hear Haj... But youre not out until AF shows!

Any news yet Pink? Hoping you get a !!!!

Kate- what made you get tested? I have terrible cysts and have had them since I was 14... And my Thyroid is mess up... My DH thinks I'm dumb, but I want to get checked out to make sure everything's okay and won't make it harder than it already is to get a BFP!


to all!!,

welcome back sav!! So fun and romantic to get away! DH had to work during our anniversary so we never did anything. I want to get away this summer. Hopefully something works out!

did u confirm O yet? I think i am Oing now like literally now... im having minor cramping. Hopefully I O finger crossed. I think waiting to O is harder than 2WW. because you dont know if you will O or not. Ugh!

do any of you use Fertility friend.com or chart/temp? Jw.

Haj- I suppose that there are alot of people that probably go through the same thing but they just dont know. Us ttcers are just to early sometimes. I am going to try and hold off this month but I am already tempted at 5dpo so i doubt I will make it.

sav2266- I got tested because we have been trying for about 12 months and dh has some fertility issues so i just wanted to make sure everything was ok with me. They said there might be an issue with my hormones but I think I did the blood test right on O instead of after so that may be why the specific hormones are not where they would have liked. You may as well get tested as then you will know for sure. It would be interesting to see how many people who have little trouble falling pregnant had any 'fertility issues' though.

I was searching for others who know of Vericocelle. My husband has this too. He says he feels pressure on his testicle. I've been on drugs to treat M.S. for the past 10 years so I need to go off of the meds for at least 5 months before we TTC. We are going to start TTC this summer! I'm charting BBT and cm and I'm taking prenatals but now after reading this post I am going to have my DH start taking some fertility vitamins. We don't want to have to consider IVF. We're both very hopeful to be able to conceive naturally. Does anyone use Preseed?
I'm hoping to hear some success stories soon!!

I'm super regular... and get EWCM on the dot every month... it's just now starting, so I should O in 2 days. I also get cysts every month, and can always feel the wonderful sharp pains on the day of O...

I think I'll try temping next month (well, unless I don't have to ;) ... I need to (as silly as it is) go buy a thermometer still. Thought we had one, but I guess not!

Kate - I agree... I would love to know how many people actually have fertility issues... It takes so many things to go right to get pregnant!! I'm also just curious to see our blood types, my DH's cousin ended up not being able to conceive due to a blood condition after 6 MC, and I know lots of women MC, but ever since our MC it makes you wonder what caused it...

Tree- I use preseed. not sure if it works or not since Im not KU. but it cant hurt, sometimes we need some lube :)

Could this be ovulation pain?

I have light cramps, and when I touch my stomach It feels tender. Also, its tender where my ovaries are. but its tender on both sides is that normal? could this be O pain? or an I just crazy?

Lastly where is everyone in their cycle??

That could definitely be O pain - I get pain on both sides, primarily on the left though. My lower abdomen hurts to touch, but also feels almost hard.

here's my cycle info ;)

Cycle/Month: 2

CD: 12

Days until O or DPO: Around 2 days until O (or so I think)

What are you doing this cycle: "Natural", recognizing body changes, and CP

Phantom Symptoms: None yet... But I'm sure that'll change here in a few days ;)

BD Timing: Around every other day for the next week or so... only once so far this week but the next few days I'm sure we'll be busy

Feeling about this cycle: Pretty hopeful, but for some reason, I feel that we're going to take a while to get pregnant. Just some weird feeling that I have.

Testing Plans: I'm going to TRY and wait till 12 DPO, but I tend to be very impatient, so we'll see how that ends up working out.

Welcome tree, as a HPC, I need to ask if you've spoken with your dr about stopping your MS meds to TTC? A flare up is the last thing you need right now... Just checking that your team is helping you through is process

Haj, Thinking of you... Let us know how you go!

I had my lap as per of trying to get ready to TTC with a history of severe endo like pain, and it was quite devastating too hear we may struggle. my dr was very positive though after the procedure. Finding out about the blocked Fallopian tube was the last thing I expected from the procedure. It's just strange how for such a long time in our lives we're trying not to get pregnant, and then suddenly you realize it's not as easy as you thought it would be.

Hello All,
I read posts all of the time and thanks to everyone...you guys have some good topics. I am looking for a cycle buddy. I am 12dpo and I got a bfn yesterday:( I am beyond depressed. I lost my fiirst at 20 weeks last October and had a early mc last month. We tried again this month but I feel like af is really on her way. I am ready to give up on the hopes of being a mommy...getting af every month is just too devastating. Sorry if I sound like debbie downer...just heart broken.

Big hugs! It is totally understandable to feel that way after everything you have been through. I think coming here to speak to people and express these feelings is an important way of working through these feelings.

I am also 12DPO.... Gave in and tested this morning before hubby left on his trip. It was a BFN... :( I'm still trying to keep positive, but won't test again until after AF is due.

AF showed today (2 days late)...so I definitely think it was a chemical pregnancy :( Thinking about taking a month off...but I know in two weeks, O time, I won't want to. Thanks to everyone for the support. It is really nice to know I am not alone on this journey (aside from my DH).

Welcome, fdrysdale! So sorry to hear of your previous loss :( Don't give up yet on this one, though, not until AF shows! Thinking of you! Keep us updated!

Don't give up either, Contemplating! But yes, I would wait to test till after AF is due. I advise that to all of us, if you can hold off! I'm throwing away all of my ic's just to keep me from wanting to next month. If I know I need to buy a more expensive test, then I most likely won't test till much later! I totally agree with you on the TTC point you made...I wish it was easier when the timing is right too...

How is everyone else doing?

Here is my updated info:

Cycle/Month: 4

CD: 1

Days until O or DPO: 13

What are you doing this cycle: OPKs and possibly back to temp charting. NOT testing until AFTER AF is due. Just too stressful.

Phantom Symptoms: horrible back pains, blaming it on the CP.

BD Timing: every day the week leading up to O, and two days after

Feelings about this Cycle: hoping to have one that actually sticks this time...

Testing Plans: not till after AF is due. Hoping I can hold off! This month will be a good reminder to do so.
